Call for Abstracts

ISMRD is pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the Fifth International Conference on Glycoproteinoses to be held in Rome, Italy 1st–4th November 2017.

The Glycoproteinoses are: Aspartylglucosaminuria, Fucosidosis, Galactosialidosis, Alpha-Mannosidosis, Beta-Mannosidosis, Mucolipidosis II, Mucolipidosis III, Schindler disease and Sialidosis. These diseases are collectively and individually under-represented in patient support groups, case reports, in the medical literature, and in basic and translational research.

A goal of the conference is to bring together experts who approach these conditions from different fields. Researchers, clinicians and students of all scientific disciplines are invited to submit abstracts describing excellent clinical or laboratory work focused on any of the glycoproteinoses. Participation by graduate and post-doctoral students and fellows is encouraged.

The abstracts may be presented as posters and the ISMRD’s Scientific Advisory Board will select a number of the abstracts for platform presentations.
